I am a good person because.....(the silence at this point is deafening):

I do not judge others;

I am compassionate and caring;

I LISTEN (even though right now I can't hear);

I do not want to hurt others (emotionally, physically, mentally or sexually);

I have asked for help, not only to achieve my own inner peace, but because the people around me who care deserve to have the best me they can get - and I see the impact of my pain on them.

I accept that my actions in recent years that have hurt people (those that I care about and those that care about me) are my actions - but I will try every day to understand and grow and change so I do not make those mistakes again;

I want to communicate and understand my emotions in a "healthy" way (I haven't learned how, and I want to learn now);

I will fight every day to prove my abusers wrong.

I guess the silence wasn't that deafening after all.

I guess this is a real sore spot for me. I started thinking about what I would say in this thread and it threw me into a crying fit.

The guy who raped me four years ago wouldn't cry about not feeling like a good person. Why should I when I've never intentionally tried to hurt anyone except in self defense? OK, now that I think about it, that's not entirely true. But there's no doubt in my mind that I've helped people more than I have hurt them. Might have even saved a life. I just feel so worthless. I feel like a piece of sh*.

I am a good person because I finally take action to try and
- save myself
- save my marriage
- be a loving father to my child (and unborn due soon)!
